This is Where the Learning Begins!

This course, written by TVC Consultant Sue Cooke, Grad.Dip.Phys, is a great introduction to the anatomy of the neck.

The course works very well as a stand-alone introduction to the subject, whether you're a singing teacher or just interested in the subject. It's a great insight into what's going on in there! 

Note, this course is a pre-requisite for our in-person workshop "An Introduction to Laryngeal Massage" with The Voc Doc, Charles Ward. If you have booked a place on that course, then free access to these materials is included in the price. This course must be completed before the workshop takes place, on April 23rd and 24th 2022.
